Drive Up Window:

Our Drive-Up window on the east side of the building is open during regular Library hours.  You can drop off materials, as well as arrange to have materials that you place on hold ready for pickup at the window.  You need your Library card or driver’s license to use this service. The window is for vehicle traffic only.  You may be asked to come inside to pay fines, resolve issues, or pick up large items.  Teacher Loans must be done inside the Library.

Book Drop available 24/7 - returns only. Please do not put book donations in the Book Drop.

Holds Notification:

You may choose how you receive notification that items you have requested are available for pick up. Your options are:

  1. To be notified via telephone
  2. To be notified via e-mail

Your preference will be added to your account at the time of registration. There is a space for this information on the registration form.

You may also check the availability of your holds at any time online by logging into your account on our library catalog. You will need your entire 14-digit library card number* and your PIN number. If you are unsure of your PIN number, please request this information, with proper ID, at the check-out desk.

Once your hold becomes available, you have three (3) days to pick it up from the checkout desk. (*located on the back of your physical card; for your safety, this information is not available on your receipt.)

Courtesy Reminders

If you select email notification, we'll send you a courtesy e-mail reminder three days before your items are due. We'll even provide a link to renew those items able to be renewed.
